They Did a Good Job!!
I can`t imagine the power of young people when given the instruments that can change the world! Being a team leader for the JUMP KIBERA,i confess that,this group has done a commendeable job;and for real,they interviewed if you listen well;asked me questions that can be asked by any professional journalist.
The stories will be told through your efforts,continue on and i will be behind you especially the Kibera team to enable you participate effectively even after the group work.

Well done posting your first podcast from Kibera. Very informative...and professional!
Jump Kibera's goal to have 70% of youth involved is impressive...what percentage of Kibera youth are working with JUMP today? In the United States only 10% or fewer of 18-24 years olds voted in the last presidential election...getting a large percentage of youth to focus on one issue is challenging.
The National Public Radio recently conducted a series of stories about AIDS in Africa...I wonder if they would be interested in JUMP? You can listen to the stories at: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5550263
Looking forward to your next posting!
